This week has been Hell Week for me. I don’t usually like to be negative because I have a lot to he grateful for. BUT it was horrible.
When I have a bad day/ week I like to put the pent up negative energy to good use! I like to do a high energy/ high intensity workout. Boxing is perfect as you can pretend to punch whoever is upsetting you in the face. I hope that doesn’t offend anyone, I’m not promoting violence, just a healthy outlet for your unhappy feelings.
Please see your Docfor before starting any new exercise regime. If you are feeling sick, injured, in pain, overly tired, light headed or dizzy stopa exercising and see your doctor. This is a high impact workout. Not suitable if you have joint problems or injuries. You will need a jump rope and a step.
Warm up 6 mins – start with some light cardio, then move onto a more dynamic warm up- go through the motions of different punches and kicks. Keep moving.
Circuit 1- 6 mins
